  • FIFTIES
  • 2005
    Age 56
    In 2005, Mosher collaborated with Peter Brook, bringing Brook's company, CICT, to Barnard College for a month-long residency.
    More Details Hide Details This residency marked a break in the long-standing relationship between Brook and Brooklyn Academy of Music. Brook staged Tierno Bokar, based on the life of the Malian Sufi of the same name. The play was adapted for the stage by Marie-Hélène Estienne from Vie et enseignement de Tierno Bokar, le sage de Bandiagara by Amadou Hampate Ba (translated into English as A Spirit of Tolerance: The Inspiring Life of Tierno Bokar). Columbia University produced 44 related events, lectures, and workshops that were attended by over 3,200 people throughout the run of Tierno Bokar. Panel discussions focused on topics of religious tolerance and Muslim tradition in West Africa. Mosher is a professor at Columbia's School of the Arts, and has lectured or guest-taught at Yale, New York University (NYU), University of Pennsylvania, and Juilliard. While at the Goodman he created a full-fledged accredited residence program for NYU undergraduates which continues, nearly twenty years later, in New York. He has lectured or participated in symposia on theatre and film at such places as the 92nd Street Y, the Royal National Theatre, and the Independent Feature Project. He is a member of the New York Institute for the Humanities.
  • 2004
    Age 55
    President Lee C. Bollinger created the Arts Initiative at Columbia University in 2004 to change the role of the arts across the university, and hired Mosher as its first director, a position he stepped down from in Fall 2010.
    More Details Hide Details Since its inception the Initiative has developed programs to enliven the arts on campus and to link the university's intellectual mission to New York's cultural life. Among its programs are Passport to NYC, which provides Columbia students with free admission at 28 New York City museums, including the Metropolitan Museum, MoMA and the Guggenheim. The Ticket and Information Center (online and at the student center) provides free and discount tickets to NYC plays, concerts and films as well as campus events; 45,000 tickets are sold or distributed each semester. ArtsLink makes it possible for professors to assign live cultural events as easily as they assign books; because ArtsLink tickets are subsidized, the events cost as much as a paperback. To extend Arts Initiative benefits beyond the student population, the Columbia Alumni Arts League was created to serve alumni, faculty and staff.
  • FORTIES
  • 1992
    Age 43
    His collaboration with Tennessee Williams included William’s final full-length play, A House Not Meant to Stand, directing and producing the 1992 Broadway revival of A Streetcar Named Desire, starring Alec Baldwin and Jessica Lange, and the Kennedy Center production of The Glass Menagerie.
    More Details Hide Details During South Africa’s apartheid period, Mosher was a frequent visitor to Johannesburg and Soweto. He organized the first-ever festival of South African drama (Woza Afrika!) at Lincoln Center, showcasing theatrical productions and funneling tens of thousands of dollars to Township arts groups and individual artists. During the NEA “decency” debate of the early 1990s, Mosher, with the support of John Lindsay, was one of a very small group of arts administrators to decline the Endowment’s annual grant. His film The Prime Gig (starring Vince Vaughn, Ed Harris, and Julia Ormond) played the Venice, London, and Los Angeles Film festivals. He directed (for TNT) Mamet’s A Life in the Theatre (starring Jack Lemmon and Matthew Broderick), which won the CableACE Award for Best Drama, and produced the film version of American Buffalo, starring Dustin Hoffman and Dennis Franz. For the BBC, he directed Uncle Vanya, starring Ian Holm, David Warner, and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. He has written three screenplays, including an adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's Laughter in the Dark.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1975
    Age 26
    Mosher directed and produced the premieres of twenty-three of David Mamet’s plays, beginning with American Buffalo in 1975.
    More Details Hide Details His Broadway production of Glengarry Glen Ross garnered Mamet the Pulitzer Prize. His collaboration with Samuel Beckett spanned the final decade of that writer’s life, and included Beckett’s own production of Endgame, and the Lincoln Center production of Waiting for Godot, directed by Mike Nichols.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1949
    Age 0
    Born 1949 in New York City, Mosher attended Oberlin College, Ithaca College and the Juilliard School where he was the school's first directing student.
    More Details Hide Details After leaving Juilliard in his third year, he moved to Chicago to assist William Woodman, head of the Goodman Theatre, who appointed him to lead the newly formed Goodman Stage 2, one of the pioneering theatres of the 1970s Chicago theatre scene. Three years later, after Woodman's resignation, he became director of the Goodman. Beginning with a new version of Richard Wright’s Native Son, and focusing on new work, the Goodman soon gained wide national attention. After seven seasons at the Goodman, Mosher was invited by former New York City mayor John V. Lindsay to head the theatre at Lincoln Center, which, despite the leadership of such theatre giants as Elia Kazan and Joseph Papp, had faltered through much of its twenty-year history. At the time of Lindsay’s offer, the theatre had not produced a play in over four years; it had virtually no operating capital, little ability to generate it, and no community of artists to energize the stages.
